Planner Highlights At A Glance
Weekly Plan (Mini Weekly Calendar + Two Days per page)
The TAN comes with yearly, monthly, weekly and daily views. Most of the planner consists of a layout that is unique to Take a Note, the Weekly Plan layout. It displays one week in a vertical orientation, over two full-page spreads (4 pages total): a mini weekly calendar, and splits the week into two days on each page.
This layout allows you to view the week at a glance, and provides more space than a traditional vertical calendar to jot down to-dos and events. Each day includes a 24-hour vertical timeline (plus blank grid space at the top and bottom each day), and moon phases.
Calendar and Yearly Gantt Chart
The first few pages in the TAN planner comprise of an annual calendar and yearly Gantt chart. The annual view spans September 2023 to April 2025, so it is useable from the moment you receive your planner.
The horizontal Yearly Gantt chart (Jan - Dec 2024) allows users to note important events (holidays, birthdays, etc.) or can be used for habit tracking.
Vertical Gantt Chart Yearly Plan
The vertical yearly plan gives you an overall view of the year. The vertical planner can be helpful for planning long-term projects, as well as a habit tracking table. Extra spacing are added at the bottom of this section to provide more space for notes.
Take A Note's monthly view comes with ample grid space surrounding the monthly calendar. These can be divided into different sections for different months such as monthly tasks and goals. The monthly view spans December 2023 to March 2025.
